Gencor, an ingredient supplier rooted in Ayurvedic tradition, will introduce its new ingredient, ActivAMP, at Engredea. ActivAMP is extracted from Gynostemma pentaphyllum, an adaptogenic herb, and activates an enzyme called AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPk).
A recent study found statistically decrease in body fat mass, body fat percentage, body weight and BMI and total abdominal fat in the group taking ActivAMP (then called Actiponin), compared to a placebo (Obesity (Silver Spring). 2014 Jan;22(1):63-71).
“AMPk is often called the ‘master metabolic regulator’ and switches on the same fat-burning and energy-producing metabolic processes that exercise does," said Paul Clayton, Ph.D., chief scientific advisor, Gencor. “Human, animal and phytochemical studies have demonstrated the effect of ActivAMP in supporting the metabolic process through AMPk activation."
ActivAMP is available as a free-flowing powder, suitable for use in powders, tablets and capsules. To get more information on ActivAMP, visit Gencor's booth, No. 613, at Engredea in Anaheim, March 7-9.
